As he told me and I qoute him... "it evolved!" hahahahahaaha
just some cast blast spary paint from oreillys.its high temp for manifolds.
had a local pin stripper/hamber ( cheddar) come by today and do some lines. i just wanted something clean and basic. i got what i wanted, he did pieces all over the interior and im happy.
sorry chad, i couldn't wait, it will be too crazy sat anyways, you can do teh outside of i ever finish it!
got the motor and trans back in for teh last time hopefully.
unfortunately, i just couldn't pull this one off, by the hamb drags deadline. too much heat,rust repair,and other things that came up that delayed me. either way im done for the weekend, now to have it done for drag week!
looks great, man i need to get another f-100. why cant you build something that looks like shit so i stop wanting more stuff? ah screw it- keep the updates comin.

Looks great, man! You sure have kicked some ass in the past couple of weeks.
See ya tomorrow... and hopefully in Topeka for the start of Drag Week!
yes, thanks malcolm. see ya tomorrow!
Man, I told ya you're making us look bad, so when fed-ex shows up with boxes of choped up unibody you just get to work and call me when it's done!!! hahaha! Seriously though, lookin good man!! I wish I could move as fast as you!!!!
This build just keeps on impressing me every time I look at it!
ship it! or just save on the wait time and buy this one!
thanks! means a lot!
Damn...I can't believe how fast this is progressing...
I want to thank you for motivating me to get into my sons off topic stalled mustang project.
wow , thanks. get out there and get to work!
This is unreal!!!! If you could bottle up some of your motivation, energy and talents, you could sell if for millions!! Great work and very inspirational to say the least. I can't wait to see the finished product.
Love this build, great pictures. great progress, keep us updated
Oh My GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheddar gets it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Less is more and that is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Some of the nicest, cleanest and to the point striping I have seen in a long time.
seeing it in person really shows how much work youve done....cant wait to ride in it...
if you can capture it ill split it with you!
thank you very much.
pretty much my thoughts. i didn't want it to be to overpowering, and flashy. i still walk by it a see different things that i haven't noticed before, and sometimes you think something is there, but t he light hits it and it pops.
looking forward to finshing this one up, and drag week!
My wife wonders how you can get so much done on your truck and my is sitting, rotting in the back yard. I guess this build will force me to get my butt in gear.
i haven't been working on this, trying to recoup from teh hamb drags, but it over and time to get back to work!
i fab'd up the steering column mounts, for the new ididit column (i know not tradinitional, but comfort is!). i wasn't really happy with the way the modified one fit, so its for sale now!
got the throttle pedal and cables all made up and mounted. had to fab up a quick cable bracket at the carb. off to mike tonight to paint it all and hopefully install it all tomorrow!
some people asked about the cobra oil pan also that i took off, it too is for sale pm me.
dont worry about the billet levers, ive already glass beaded those also.
This truck is really sick! Love it
had a good few days.
got the column, brake pedal assembly, and shocks all painted and reinstalled.
finished boxing the rest of teh frame out. made all new x members and drive shaft hoops. got the floor cut out for teh drive shaft clearance,and got the drive shaft off to the drive line shop for a new unit to be built.
also got the front fenders and core support media blasted.
no pics, sorry been to damn hot and i for got the camera!
update later this weekend with pics!
Lookin good buddy. I will try and get that part out Monday morning. Got home from Cal at 3am. Went to work at 6am, just got home. This hurricane is gonna suck. Todd
